“Brittney Coyle and her team are truly the best. We felt like she not only listened to our needs for our new home, but was also always willing to chat about concerns or provide expertise about the areas we were looking into. The sheer amount of knowledge & network she had about any aspect of homebuying made it seem like she had been working in the industry for decades. When it came time to make an offer, she was the best advocate we could ask for and made sure we got the house we wanted. We appreciate her looking in on us throughout the process and following up with various folks to take care of our family as we relocated. She is a credit to her company and we wouldnt go with anyone else if we needed to buy again -but we found the perfect house, so hopefully not:) !” - Brittany Cordero (Google Review)
